The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

Becoming Sensory Smart

28 July 2018, Saturday
8:00AM - 12:00NN

“What is the best way to help my child with Autism who has sensory issues?” With so many available treatments, seminars, and online articles about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the process of choosing strategies for helping children with this condition can be overwhelming for parents. Professional opinions might conflict. Fees for therapy services can be very expensive.

To empower parents, this seminar-workshop will help them:

  • Understand the basic science of sensory integration (SI)

  • Identify SI difficulties among children who are diagnosed with ASD

  • Use sensory-based strategies along with the most effective occupational therapy (OT) interventions in addressing sensory processing problems at home, in school, and in the community.

  • About the Speaker:

She is also the program coordinator of the Apple Tree Integrated School, an inclusive academic institution that has a school-based therapy clinic.

She integrates sensory approaches within an occupation-based framework to help children and adults with developmental conditions live life to the full.
